Re: A modern great — and linear a!

Airfix and Matchbox will always be special, they got us in to the hobby/childhood etc . But the modern era are special too, not least of the reasons is the sheer number of sets, Airfix just over fifty, Matchbox a handful, but Hat well over 300 probably nearer 400 now, Strelets lost count , Caesar 100 + Italeri 100+ and others etc , still no one has done a decent LRDG/SAS set though.

Re: A modern great — and linear a!

Hegemony have done Desert War SAS of which I am sure you are aware but they are long way from breaking the quality barrier at present. It's a shame as I admire anyone who has a go at producing their own figures and very much hope that Hegemony can overcome their current limitations. There was a time when many people called Strelets figures ugly and wouldn't consider them, imagine if that had killed Strelets off. Even Mars are trying to improve their quality. I don't how we help companies, obviously not buying their figures sends them a very strong message but could also be terminal for them and I find that something of a dilemma.
